Relevance of college to article[edit]

I reverted this twice and I would prefer to have other feedback before doing so again. I see no relevance to listing Cohen's college in this article at all. It is extremely rare for this to be done (outside of cases like Google where Page & Brin started the search engine at Stanford). Cohen didn't start BitTorrent at Buffalo, didn't receive any assistance/funding/etc. from Buffalo, and didn't even graduate from there. If I'm the only one who thinks this, I will leave it alone but I would like to see other editors opinions on this.Caidh (talk) 12:31, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

bitlove.org[edit]

Hey I am unsure if pages like http://bitlove.org/ should be listed in BitTorrent#Broadcasters. I am not sure what the policy is for a listing. bitlove.org functionas as a bittorrent webseed supported tracker for podcasts. --Sk!d (talk) 12:29, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

My apologies - I inadvertently removed your comment on the talk page but I restored it. Sorry about that! Caidh (talk) 19:50, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

the BitTorrent entry is perfectly fine - please don't dumb it down ![edit]

it's a really good article - it's clear and precise !

"sequential downloading" section requested![edit]

I am talking about certain torrent clients ability to download a small chunk of the file and making that available for consumption (viewing, listening, etc) while more chunks are downloaded, essentially allowing the client to act as if the content was streamed.

I browsed the article but could not find anything on this. I therefore propose that a knowledgeable editor adds a small new section discussing this capability that torrent clients can have. If you object "this isn't part of the torrent specification" then at the very least, add a mention and a link onwards to a dedicated article.

Please note: I am certainly no expert and I'm not even sure what to call this feature. Please improve mercilessly :)
